SPSA Conference 2021 LIVE ONLINE* *Registered participants will also have access to all workshop recordings until March 15th 2021
This workshop on process tracing uses recorded powerpoint lectures for asynchronous viewing which allows participants to maximize the synchronous (live) workshop time for discussion and exercises, as well as brief presentations by interested participants who wish to share their plans for process tracing in their own research projects - these presentations will receive feedback from fellow participants and Professor Bennett.
Before the workshop, students should do the following two recommended readings:
Bennett, Andrew and Jeff Checkel, eds, "Chapter 1 - Process Tracing: From Philosophical Roots to Best Practices", in Process Tracing: From Metaphor to Analytic Tool. Available HERE.
Fairfield, Tasha and Andrew E. Charman. 2017. "Explicit Bayesian Analysis for Process Tracing: Guidelines, Opportunities, and Caveats". Political Analysis, 25(3): 363-380. Available online through university library databases.
Also prior to the workshop, students should watch the following two video lectures:
January 6 12:30pm - 3:30pm & January 7 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Traditional Process Tracing
Schultz/Fashoda Bayesian Process Tracing
Participants interested in making a powerpoint presentation on their research design should send a one page summary of their research designs a week in advance of the workshop to BennettA@Georgetown.edu
